Four for Friday: Foolish Edition

Check out the latest happenings in the DBZ TCG below, including a hint about Vengeance!

1 –  Deck on the rise: Black Perceptive Tenshinhan

Cell Restored, Adaptive 20, and Devious Krillin are all locks to be heavily played at any tournaments in the near future, and several other builds are almost as common (i.e., Red Turles, Yamcha, Roshi…)

MPPV is natural predator against control, and any under-teched Krillin or 20 decks can easily get left in the dust by Tien. Winning by MPPV is a tall order against Cell, but bursting through levels is still a viable tactic when backed up with adequate offensive pressure. This deck is well positioned against the field and looks to be a top contender in the emerging environment.


Pothole, eh?

2 – Nominee for most impactful card of the moment: Master Roshi – Scouted

In the current meta, Roshi Ally dramatically changes the entire game as soon as he hits the table. Decks that are unable to naturally deal critical damage will suffer the most, as they are cut off from searching out Ally removal. In fact, Roshi Ally is so strong it makes you wonder why Tag Team for Roshi doesn’t see more play!

3 – MP to reconsider: Vegeta

Cell’s presence is likely at an all time high, and many players are currently gravitating towards his early success and wide array of options. There are several ways to answer a Cell-laden field, including an emphasis on level management (of both yourself and your opponent). In the case of some MPs, the ability to function on Level 1 and ignore level-down effects can be a determining factor in your deck’s overall direction. Traditionally, this role is filled by control decks that are happy to maintain drills and play defensively. However, Blue Protective Vegeta decks are often combat oriented, and can even slant hyper-aggro. Vegeta on Level 1 is a robust option wherever Cell is lurking. . .

Put me in, coach.

4- Rather than announcing something fake and waiting to hear a collective eye-roll, the blog’s observation of April Fool’s Day will come in the form a spoiler. One of these statements is true:

  • Trunks and Yajirobe will both be featured on Main Personality cards in Vengeance.
  • Vengeance does not contain exactly four new Main Personality stacks.
  • Cooler and Meta-Cooler will both be featured as Main Personalities in Vengeance.

    • I agree that the most likely option is “not exactly 4 new MP’s.” I don’t know if that means 3 or 5, or 4 new with additional alternate versions for established MP’s.


  1. I think this statement is true: “Vengeance does not contain exactly four new Main Personality stacks” because Broly makes five! Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t see Yajirobe or Cooler.

  3. If the 3rd statement is true thank you Panini. Will be so happy that Cooler and Meta-Cooler are seperate MP stacks.


  4. Have to say that if broly is going the way of cell we will need to find who can take them down with what mastery. Will have to see what the others personality are but sounds like trunks will be the one I want more Intel on.


  5. The April Fools “hint” is the joke. The answer is all of the above.

    1. Yajirobe will be in the set.
    2. There will be more than 4 MPs: Yajiorbe, Broly, Android 13, Cooler, Future Gohan(?), and Bojack.
    3. Cooler and Metal-Cooler will be a part of the same MP stack: 1-2 regular, 3-4 metal.


  6. Vengeance will have the following MPs: Cooler/Metal-Cooler (together in one stack), Broly, Android 13, and Bojack.
